This is one of the few films on the list I had not seen before, though I am familiar with the play--it being one of my favorites.The 1966 Mike Nichols' film was nominated for 13 Academy Awards, won 5 (including Elizabeth Taylor's win for Best Actress) was based on the Tony Award-winning 1962 Edward Albee play of the same name.-- @misterbowen

Once Upon a Time in the West, they'd Hang 'Em High if anyone suggested that for A Few Dollars More you could make a movie that showed the Good, The Bad and The Ugly about the consequences of violence.ahem.-- @misterbowen

One of my all-time favorites!Sydney Pollack's "Tootsie" stars Dustin Hoffman as the consummate out-of-work actor: He's constantly complaining about the lack of jobs and yet every time he lands a part, he loses it, burns a bridge or somehow alienates the director/cast/crew by being ridiculously difficult (in service of the part of course!).Tootsie is both a send-up of the reputation of the "difficult" actor as well as a telling portrayal of gender stereotypes.Join us, won't...

Well folks, here it is, one of the better war movies ever made... But even here Spielberg manages to throw in a trademark roller-coaster ride or two. Join us, won't you?

This week we review Stephen King's paean to prison rape, tax shelters and silky smooth voice-over narration, the Shawshank Redemption. I really didn't expect to enjoy this movie as much as I did this time around. But there you go. -- @misterbowen

George Roy Hill's classic buddy flick "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" is the subject of today's podcast. Released in 1969 to critical and audience raves, this lil' gem catapulted Robert Redford to super-stardom. Well deserved, too. Paul Newman is at his affable, easy-going best as Butch Cassidy, Katherine Ross joins the cast as Etta, Sundance's lover, but Butch's love. This is one of my favorite films. -@misterbowen

Jonathan Demme's 1991 thriller is a fan favorite but Anthony Hopkins' hammy performance as Hannibal Lector doesn't sit well with @misterbowen. Join us as we discuss the X-Files template, The Silence of the Lambs.

"They call me... Misterbowen!" Doesn't have the same ring as Sidney Poitier's iconic line. But there it is. They do. We're back! We had an unintentional month and a half hiatus, but we're roaring back with "In the Heat of the Night," Norman Jewison's slightly uneven film about a murder in a small Mississippi town and the complications brought on when one of the investigators is a black homicide detective from Philadelphia. They call him "Mister Tibbs!" And so will...

Forrest Gump. A movie about love. A movie about simpler times. A movie about a whole ton of coincidences.

In 1972, Richard Nixon brought us a scandal of the highest order. In 1976, Alan J. Pakula brought us Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman in "All The President's Men." A thriller in which no one is shot, stabbed or poisoned. Or blown up. Or thrown out of a building. Wait a minute... What the hell kind of thriller is this? A guy gives vital information to a protagonist and is alive two scene's later to talk to the protagonist *again*?? Oh how little they knew in the old days... Or,...

Charles Chaplin wrote, produced, directed, scored and starred in this 1936 silent picture. A classic in its own right, it also stands as the last film of the silent era and features the first words Charlie Chaplin spoke, or rather sang, on film. There are classic moments in this film starring Chaplin as "A Factory Worker" (but really, The Little Tramp) and Paulette Goddard as "A Gamin." The film does have a full score (written by Chaplin) and sound effects and includes...

Sam Peckinpah directed this 1969 Ketchup Gun extravaganza starring William Holden, Robert Ryan, Ben Johnson and Ernest Borgnine. The thing is, there's a good story here, too. A little hard to follow at points with flashbacks and repeated dialog loops, but it's there! Join us, won't you, for a story of scorpions in a world of ants.

Billy Wilder's "The Apartment" was nominated for 10 Oscars, It won 5, including Best Picture. I think it could do so again today. Jack Lemmon gives a fantastic performance as C.C. "Buddy" Baxter, a put-upon bachelor who is caught up in a never-ending cycle of loaning out his apartment to executives in his company, so that they can cheat on their wives. Baxter appreciates the popularity until he takes a shine to Fran Kubelik (Shirley MacLaine) an elevator operator at Baxter's...

Blood and sandals again?! Aw Mom! But Stanley Kubrick's Spartacus (1960) is a true epic, a cast of 10,000 including Kirk Douglas, Jean Simmons, Lawrence Olivier, Charles Laughton, Peter Ustinov (who won an Oscar for his portrayal of Batiatus) Tony Curtis and the Spanish Army. This version of the film even contains the banned Oysters and snails scene! It does? Well ok, then, we'll try it!

Originally I had thought to do something a little more artsy with this podcast, maybe something themed to go along with the film we were watching. I couldn't come up with something better than 45 minutes of dead air for the silent films on the list, and since we're working only with audio, instead of that you get loads and loads of us talking about how much the film says without saying anything. F.W. Murnau (Nosferatu, Faust) directed George O'Brien (whose career effectively ended when silents...

Oh James Cameron, you scamp! Retelling the tragic story of the unsinkable ship through the lens of a pair of young lovers caught between worlds... He's so very modern in his free and easy manner; she, so staid and proper. ...sigh... Then the boat sinky sink sinks. NEAR far Wherever you are, please listen to this podcast, we spent a lot of time watching this film... a lot. And like the movie, this podcast is a long one...

And so... Easy Rider, we meet again. College days, hippie chicks delusions of artistic understanding... Today, a mess of a film, shot from a skeleton of a script... a noble effort or a windmill for tilting?... See how easy artistic prattle is? Anyway... Dennis Hopper co-wrote (with Peter Fonda) and directed this 1969 meditation on living the free life, what it represents and stab at a post-modern western... ... ellipsis...
